Description - Framing a House by Roe Osborn

House framing can be an intimidating challenge. Thousands of pieces of wood must be cut to precise dimensions, according to a set of plans. Accurate and safe assembly is critical as the house must support the weight of building materials, equipment, appliances and people - there's simply no room for error. And yet, this comprehensive, accessible and highly visual book walks readers through this complicated process with ease. It's all here, from using the right tools and framing a first-floor deck; to building stairs, roofs and dormers; and installing exterior trim. The hard parts aren't left out, simply made understandable.
